Your First Look at Rocko’s Modern Afterlife from BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Rocko’s Modern Afterlife #1, available in stores on April 3, 2019. In this exciting first issue in the limited comic book series from writer Anthony Burch and artist Mattia Di Meo, everyone’s favorite wallaby, Rocko, is trying to survive the zombie outbreak that’s taken over his home of O-Town!

Welcome to the future of O-town where everyone’s cell phone is glued to their hands, Heffer makes a living streaming video games online, and the latest app lets you avoid all contact with everyone else without even looking up from your gadget! But even in the midst of this  techno-utopia, there’s something not quite right with Rocko’s fellow citizens as the authorities call for a city-wide lockdown. While Rocko takes the two weeks as a time to chill and unplug from technology, the rest of the town seems to be going mad. When danger comes knocking at his door, the newly zen wallaby will have to choose whether to stay barricaded within his increasingly surrounded home or venture forth into a wasteland filled with mindless versions of his friends and neighbors.
